To support the implementation of school climate frameworks and research-based practices, we have created the web-based resources below. The content below are designed to provide an overview of concepts, challenges and barriers, recommendations for practice, tools and resources for further learning. They may be viewed independently (e.g. self-directed learning) or as a team for planning or internal professional development purposes. Webinars are grouped into six categories representing key focus areas: Restorative Practices, Chronic Absenteeism, Trauma-Informed Approaches, Data-Based Decision Making, Grant Information and Leadership. Session descriptions, speaker/presenter information, and dates are described for each webinar. Handouts or materials included in the presentation are available to download.
